Nagpur – Australia heads to Sri Lanka for its next World Cup match and things could hardly look better after two wins from two matches for the defending champions.

The fast bowlers are enjoying the subcontinental pitches, the batsmen are scoring and the squad has a day or two to rest before resuming training for a March 5 meeting with the tournament co-hosts.

Pace bowler Doug Bollinger has been ruled out of the tournament with an ankle injury but should not be missed too badly.
Shaun Tait, Mitchell Johnson and Brett Lee accounted for eight of New Zealand’s 10 wickets in a seven-wicket victory yesterday.

Captain Ricky Ponting said: “I don’t think there’s any negatives for us in the first two games.”
